North Texas Mean Green
In 1922, University of North Texas students elected the “Eagles” as the school’s new moniker. Nearly a century later, UNT students still make the eagle hand claw—a sign of unity that’s far more acceptable than if everyone wrote the same midterm paper. However, it turns out the Eagles nickname wasn’t meant to stick.
In the late 1960s, the UNT football team featured a ferocious defense that became widely known as the “Mean Green.” The exact origin of that name is up for debate, but many trace it back to “Mean” Joe Greene, a member of that defense who went on to lead the legendary Steel Curtain for the Pittsburgh Steelers. No matter the case, modern-day UNT athletics compete as the Mean Green, and as of June 2013, they do so as part of Conference USA in NCAA Division 1 (FBS).
